THE OATH OF HIPPOCRATES 

I swear by Apollo the physician, and Aesculapius, and 
Hygeia, and Panacea, and all the gods and goddesses, that 
according to my ability and judgment I will keep this oath 
and this stipulation: to reckon him who taught me this Art 
equally dear to me as my parents, to share my substance 
with him and relieve his necessities if required-, to look upon 
his offspring as my own brothers and to teach them this 
Art, if they shall wish to learn it, without fee or stipulation-, 
and that by precept, lecture, and every other mode of in- 
struction I will impart a knowledge of the Art to my own sons 
and those of my teachers, and to disciples bound by a stip- 
ulation and oath according to the law of medicine, but to 
none others. I will follow that system of regimen which ac- 
cording to my ability and judgment I consider for the bene- 
fit of my patients, and abstain from whatever is deleterious 
and mischievous. I will give no deadly medicine to anyone 
if asked, nor suggest any such counsel-, and in like manner 
I will not give to a woman a pessary to produce abortion. 
With purity and with holiness I will pass my life and practice 
my Art. I will not cut persons laboring under the stone, but 
will leave this to be done by men who are practitioners of 
this work. Into whatever houses I enter I will go into them 
for the benefit of the sick and will abstain from every vol- 
untary act of mischief and corruption-, and further, from the 
seduction of females and males, of freemen and slaves. 
Whatever, in connection with my professional practice or 
not in connection with it, I see or hear in the life of men 
which ought not to be spoken of abroad, I will not divulge, 
as reckoning that all such should be kept secret. While I 
continue to keep this oath unviolated may it be granted to 
me to enjoy life and the practice of the Art, respected by 
all men and all times. But should I trespass and violate this 
oath may the reverse be my lot.

^Jo Lj ale ^J\neeiand, Ar. 



The Class of 1966 takes special pleasure in dedicat- 
ing its yearbook, the Aesculapian, to Dr. Yale Kneeland, 
Jr. Endowed not only with a keen sense of humor but 
with a genuine sense of humanity, Dr. Kneeland has made 
his courses in physical and differential diagnosis memor- 
able educational experiences. Few instructors have brought 
the energy and dedication to the task of teaching which 
he has— fewer succeeded so well. As a healer, scientist, 
and teacher, Dr. Kneeland will remain without peer in 
our memories. 



Do Dke CL&A of 1966 

Not long after I had been informed that the Fourth Year Class 
was graciously proposing to dedicate its Year Book to me, a repre- 
sentative asked if I would be willing to write a few words for inclu- 
sion in the book. This should have seemed like the easiest and pleas- 
antest task in the world. Surely anyone still in possession of some 
remnant of his senses who has existed in the world of academic 
medicine until the verge of retirement should have something to say 
worth reading. At least this would appear to be the opinion of most 
of my colleagues who have the misfortune to belong to the same 
vintage as I. They are constantly putting into elegant prose the dis- 
tilled essence of their wisdom. Subjects such as Medical Education, 
Medicine and Society, the Distribution of Health Services, and the 
shape of things to come are the inspirations for innumerable papers 
that I have seen in medical and para-medical journals during recent 
years. I have read them with a feeling of awe, but when confronted 
with a request to do a similar job myself, I was overpowered by the 
thought that every conceivable thing about Medicine that can be 
said has been said far better than I could. As the deadline approach- 
ed, my sense of frustration deepened. Finally it occurred to me that 
there was one subject about which I might write very briefly, as I 
had a feeling for it. The subject was the Medical Student. 

I suppose in the United States of America there are thirty-odd 
thousand young gentlemen who fit into this category. They have 
been carefully selected for admission to medical school on the basis 
of a number of qualities which are clearly defined in the minds of the 
members of Admissions Committees. These include much better than 
average endowment of native intelligence, scholastic achievement, 
emotional stability, dedication (whatever that means), character, and 
personal charm. In consequence, the medical student is a most fan- 
tastically pleasant person to deal with. He is not an Angry Young Man. 
He has no pent-up stores of resentment against society. He is tre- 
mendously cooperative, enormously industrious, and, all in all, not 
only a gifted but a very good man. Thus, there are thirty-odd thou- 
sand of these young paragons who are still in a stage of innocence 
and are as yet uncontaminated by the cynicism which affects some 
physicians later in life. As a category of human beings, I have never 
seen their equal. Gentlemen, I salute you. May the aura of innocence 
and virtue surround you always.

"The time has come," the Walrus said, 

"To talk of many things: 

Of gracilis — and Sylvius — 

Of cabbages — and kings — 

A nd why the squash so oft does rot — 

And whether pigs have wings." 

"But wait a bit," the Freshmen cried, 

"Before we have our chat; 

For some of us are out of breath. 

And all of us are fat!" 

"No hurry," said the Carpenter. 

They thanked him much for that.

"Nearly," replied Sayer, helping himself

^Jne f^eopie, the f^lace, the J^urpo 



It all began with a letter— a letter of ac- 
ceptance. In response, on a crisp, clear, late- 
summer day in September, 1962, 108 men 
and 12 women converged on the medical 
college whose forerunner, in 1767, had con- 
ferred the first Doctor of Medicine degree 
in the North American colonies. From 21 
home states we came: 83 from the East (59 
Empire Staters), 13 from the Central States, 
13 from the West, 9 from the South, and 
one each from India and Iran. Fifty-two 
colleges and universities were represented, 
with 54 of the class coming from Harvard 
(16), Columbia (16), Princeton (11), and 
Yale (11). A diversity of backgrounds, skills, 
and interests was assembled: big-city and 
small town, 14 married and 106 single, ex- 
service men, an ex-sheriff, a West Pointer, 
students from Oxford and Cambridge, teach- 
ers, hospital workers, researchers, a gover- 
nor's granddaughter, a Senator's grandson, 
campus big-wigs, European travellers (one 
voyager up the Nile), motorcyclists, a sky- 
diving enthusiast, airplane pilots, swimming 
instructors, soccer and rugby experts, squash 
and tennis stars, skiers, hikers, hunters, as- 
sorted athletes, photographers, do-it-yourself 
hi-fi builders, artists, writers, instrumental- 
ists, singers, amateur horticulturists— and one 
camel expert. With such diversity, there 
still existed one unifying, common purpose: 
the study of Medicine. Some saw this as a 
pathway to future security, or responsibility, 
or prestige, or wealth; others thought pri- 
marily of research, or teaching, or service, 
or sacrifice. Whatever the various motives, 
the next four years together would be a 
learning process for all concerned; many 
goals would be redefined, others reinforced, 
some rejected. Four years hence, at com- 
mencement, we would look back and briefly 
reminisce. But who, in September, 1962, 
could imagine that four years would rush 
by so quickly! 

Our Year of Initiation began officially on 
Thursday, September 6, 1962— tanned and 
well-rested college graduates were again 
freshmen. Having once entered the College 
building, we were immediately whisked up 
to the Registrar's office by white-frocked 
sophomores, where we were presented with 
myriad registration and scholarship forms 
bv Mrs. Daly. Then into the hall again to 
fill them out, up to the seventh floor Bursar's 
office to placate or plead, and down to the 



Ae 



sub-basement for fingerprints, blood tests, 
and the infamous, permanent mug shots. 
Finishing this clerical work, there was just 
enough time to join a tour of the Medical 
Center: a rapid blur of amphitheatres, labs, 
preemie nurseries, O. R.'s, wards— and be- 
wildering tunnels. Surviving this walkathon, 
most of us hustled back to move into our 
new home, Bard Hall, where during the next 
few days we would attend a smoker, stu- 
dent-faculty tea, and roof-top dance. 

The Saturday soph-frosh picnic at the 
Nevis Estate, complete with baseball, volley- 
ball and football games, fostered an early 
feeling of class identity, as did the reception 
on Sunday night. At this time we had our 
first contact with the new Associate Dean, 
Dr. Perera, and heard him proudly tell us 
we were "the best class" (thus far), with— 
Phi Beta Kappa keys — class presidents, and 
"enough musicians to fill an orchestra"— 
in addition to having in our class the per- 
son with the highest med board scores in 
the country. However, stress was not placed 
on grades, but on learning the art and 
science of Medicine, on fostering responsi- 
bility, and developing into the "well-round- 
ed" physician. 

Monday morning arrived, and with it an 
official opening day ceremony. One hundred 
twenty eager new faces in old, cramped, 
poorly lit Amphitheatre A looked down on 
the robed deans and heard an inspiring ad- 
dress by Dr. McKay. 

Thinking back to those early days of our 
initiation, certain personalities and events 
are particularly memorable. In bio-chemistry 
we think of the House of Davids: a terrible- 
tempered Groucho Marx synthesizing pro- 
tein, a respected Indian accent exhorting 
us to learn carbohydrate metabolism, a be- 
wildering whirlpool of energy describing 
porphyrins, sarcastic comments about DNA 
synthesis and nerve impulse conduction, a 
misplaced lecture about information theory; 
a laboratory' in perpetual motion: titrating 
unknown acids, guillotining rats, and urinat- 
ing for glucose tolerance tests — all over- 
seen by a surly Russian wearing a beret. 
And of course, we remember the famous 
"How do you transaminate . . .?" question, 
and the even more famous Spotnitz paper 
airplane. 

At the same time there was histology: its 
kindly chairman describing the size of red 
blood cells in lengthy detail, an electron 
microscopist berating the slide projectionist 



84 



("Mary, when I say focus, I mean make 
better]"), a nervous lecturer on the tooth 
and liver, and a fair-haired farmboy try- 
ing to spell "cartlege." 

But the work was still relatively light 
( compared with what was to come ) , and tor 
most of the class there was plenty of free 
time. In addition to locating the bookstore 
and coatroom, we could now find Luigi's, 
Reme's, the Friendly Shop, Maxwell Hall, 
and the T. G. Dave Lowance discovered the 
law of gravity and ended up on crutches; 
Etsy discovered the pool. Our carefree ex- 
istence was occasionally disturbed by hour 
tests, including "musical microscope" iden- 
tifications; we were also introduced to the 
"tapping" system. However, post-exam cock- 
tail parties usually restored confidence— or 
expunged the memory. 

Time passed quickly. We finished learn- 
ing Chi-square methods from a Stentorian- 
voiced statistician, and became geneticists, 
under the guidance of "Orange Juice," "The 
Crutch Lady," and Dr. "Read-them-a-lec- 
ture" Falek. 

A New York Telephone Company building 
exploded, and we witnessed the famous 
Hospital Emergency Plan go into effect. It 
was surpassed only by our own rush to the 
10th floor to sign up for anatomy groups 
and tables. And then, before we knew it, 
finals had come and gone, and we could 
breathe easily again for two more weeks. 
But before departing for vacation we admir- 
ed the Marianna-Peggy reindeer and help- 
ed Bob Knapp decorate Bard for the P&S 
Club Xmas Party. 

Two weeks later we were all back, includ- 
ing the skiers, the Caribbeanites, and those 
who could "sneak a week" in Florida. Dick 
Withington presented his annual report on 
how many feet of snow fell at Watertown. 

We were welcomed "aboard" Gross Anat- 
omy by Pilot Ely, rounded up tools and 
texts, and met our cadavers. It was soon 
clear why four people were needed in each 
group: one to prepare the exercise, one to 
bring over an instructor, one to take the 
instructor away, and one to keep an eye on 
Albert and the tools. At the same time, our 
five-man "animal teams" w-ere invading 
Physiology on alternate days. We became 
skinners and oscillograph recorders, dissec- 
tors and nerve experts. People were taking 
more notice of us; they expected more. 
(They expected us to use a different eleva- 
tor after anatomy lab. ) The pace was getting 
faster. 

During this term Larry William perform- 
ed his first C-section (on a rabbit), the 
class drank salt water and urea cocktails, 
a water faucet was turned on by Dr. Wal- 
cott, we journeyed "down the nephron" to 
learn that "the kidney does not make urine," 



watched Dr. Ely rotate the gut, made Valen- 
tine cards out of anatomy, heard about "af- 
fewent wollies," and learned that "respira- 
tion is a strange process, caught midway be- 
tween the conscious and the uncons- 
cious . . . ." We met new and interesting 
people: Albert, the Enema Man, and Char- 
lotte. We encountered Physiology multiple- 
choice tests, and Anatomy fill-in-the-blank 
tests. To make sure we got our money's 
worth from tuition, they even gave us an- 
other course, Neuroanatomy, complete with 
Dr. Carpenter's thalamus lecture, and Dr. 
Noback's cranial nerve classic. We were 
impressed. 

Ninety- per cent of the class joined the 
Note Group. The faculty was impressed. 

Spring vacation finally arrived, but pass- 
ed too quickly. We were confronted by our 
first Neuro test, and learned that all the 
tracts and nuceli are "ambiguous." The 
psychiatry final was far less traumatic (few- 
er notes to review), but a head and neck 
dentist and an English-speaking urologist 
teamed up to keep us guessing in Gross. 
Finally, that course was finished also and 
one anatomy group celebrated with a tourist 
boat trip around Manhattan. 

Pathology classes were cancelled (and 
moved to the fall ) and the Embryology final 
was punted; preparations for our Class Show 
were progressing at a frantic pace. Although 
only a "orie-nighter." A Humerus Thing Hap- 
pened on the Way to the Forearm proved to 
be an off-Broadway hit. Who could forget 
Dave Perera "ceaselessly smiling," or Don 
Palatucci "staaanding in the aaampitheatre"? 
And what about Marianna "Burst" Pinchot, 
Jim "Copenhagen" Flint, or "psychiatrist" 
Dave Angstreich? There were Dan Shack- 
man's lyrics, especially the unforgettable 
"Dean's Song"; we saw whistling midgets, 
Howie Kaufman ovulating, Mort Cohen dis- 
secting the oculo-anal nerve, and Steve 
Pauley "spinning: I'm spinning to the right, 
Harry." We remember the two lab instruc- 
tors (White and Giventer). John Harris in 
Supermoth costume, Jack Baker in less-of-a- 
costume, Clark Fitzmorris' Charleston, and 
the two Nisonsons: Enema Man and Char- 
lotte. And, of course, we remember the price- 
less finale: Doug Greer's pantomined, re- 
corded Neuroanatomy Note Group skit, ap- 
propriately set to the Lone Ranger tempo. 
Most of all, we were proud of our class: 90% 
had participated, 100% had enjoyed them- 
selves, and everyone had been essential and 
responsible for the show's success. 

Although Neuro and Physio finals were 
still obstacles to be cleared before our last 
summer vacation, they were really anti- 
climactic. Our first year could be summariz- 
ed easily: more than 100 persons of differ- 
ing backgrounds and interests had assembled 



85 



in September; by May a broad foundation of 
medical knowledge had been given to them, 
and their numerous talents had been har- 
moniously blended to produce a class, P&S 
'66. 

September, 1963: back we came from 
across the globe. The Year of Initiation had 
given way to a Year of Transition, one in 
which seasoned sophomores would now give 
tours and hard-learned advice to a new, in- 
coming class, and where emphasis would 
slowly shift from the academic to the clini- 
cal aspects of medicine. 

(Epitomizing the change, our President 
returned early from the Valley of the Jolly 
Green Giant in order to get some first-hand 
knowledge about cardiac catheterization.) 

The quality of the lectures and labs under- 
went a striking improvement, as we were in- 
troduced to the most well-run of the pre- 
clinical courses, Microbiology; interest in 
the students was paramount, and best illus- 
trated by the fact that within a week the 
chairman knew the name of each member 
of the class. We learned about viruses, bac- 
teria, anaphylactic guinea pigs, and the 
heterogeneity of antibodies; we heard that 
in one lecture a "lot of misinformation was 
given out;" we learned about the Greek and 
Roman roots of such common words as 
"Herpes zoster"; we listened to Dave Brown 
insist that "puneumocock'us" was pronounc- 
ed "pneumocoe'cus"; we waited for Mr. Duke 
to answer a Friday afternoon question; we 
removed blood from rabbits' ears and lab 
partners' arms. 

Concurrently, there was Pathology: a 
cigarette-smoking electron microscopist, a 
bone expert, the "Man in the Pan," visits to 
Montefiore and Mt. Sinai, reunion of old 
anatomy groups for autopsy reports, and the 
famous color slide of a "schoolteacher" — 
all watched over by General Schwartzman. 

We were introduced to Public Health, and 
the delightful wit of a world-traveller para- 
sitologist. We endured Pharmacology once 
a week. 

With Micro and Thanksgiving over, we 
returned to take our first Pharm exam, and 
found that "even man off street" could do 
better. We learned about antibiotics, antihy- 
pertensives, antidepressives, and antimala- 
rials in lectures, about antiemetics and antip- 
athy in lab. Neuropathology (tap, tap) 
was not very taxing, and neither was intro- 
ductory Surgery. We were shown "burn 
films" before lunch, felt faint at the bed- 
side, and saw interesting surgical cases — 
including Chuck Poletti's broken fibula (a 
skiing accident) and Dick Withington's 
sprained ankle (a volleyball mishap). 
Meanwhile, Path and Pharm were almost 



finished: hundreds of drugs, lectures, and 
slides had to be reviewed in one hectic- 
week. But then, in a relatively few hours, it 
was over, and pentup energy could be re- 
leased in the traditional 11th floor Bard 
Hall Path party, at which time a Beatle wig 
and a purloined Department of Pathology 
sign made their debuts. 

( Many classmates also remember a second 
party that month, arranged by Annette; 
namely, Howie's surprise birthday party, 
complete with Rolls-Royce, newspaper 
photographer, and Baroness Rothschild in 
her townhouse! ) 

The preclinical years were officially over. 

Now we were learning about anemias, 
leukemias, and uremias in Clinical Path; 
about ascariasis, filariasis, trypanosomiasis, 
and amebiasis in Parasitology; about family 
history, personal history, social history, and 
past medical history in Introduction to 
Medicine. Many members of the class were 
delighted at the increasing practicality of 
the lectures; others complained, as usual, 
that we had entered a period of curricular 
shifting dullness. Lectures varied greatly— 
from the sublime: Dr. Kneeland describing 
heart and lung sounds punctuated by per- 
sonal anecdote — to the ridiculous: a record- 
ed lecture on urine punctuated by "beeps" 
for the slide projector. 

All in all, the last trimester of our second 
year was the transition phase in which we 
learned the rudiments of clinical history, 
physical examination, and laboratory study 
necessary for the diagnosis of disease. In 
the third year we would put these talents to 
more frequent use. 



Our Year of Clerkship began without any 
interim vacation, and the class was also, for 
the first time, split into four groups: Elec- 
tive, Medicine, Surgery-Pediatrics, and Spe- 
cialties. Infrequently, most of us would 
gather for special occasions, including the 
National Boards, Part I (June 23-24), and 
such special 12 o'clock lectures as those giv- 
en by the medical examiner from Long Is- 
land, or the Surgery department presenting 
a particularly attractive colostomy patient. 
We met on Saturday mornings to learn 
clinical psychiatry and surgical pathology; 
twice we journeyed to Bellevue for lecture- 
demonstrations on contagious diseases; once, 
in May, we saw every skin lesion known to 
man ( and woman ) gathered together on one 
floor in Yanderbilt Clinic. 

It would be impossible to give a detailed 
description of each course, because all of 
us, on differing schedules, had different ex- 
periences. However, generally speaking, for 
most of the class Medicine was the hardest. 



86 



Peds the most practical, and Surgery the 
best taught; almost everyone, whether on 
Delafield, Neurology, research, or overseas, 
enjoyed his elective period. We stopped feel- 
ing squeamish while drawing blood or 
watching dressing changes. We learned how 
to take histories and present a case. We be- 
gan to appreciate medical terms: "crock," 
"gork," "supratentorial," "CPMC," "SOB"— 
and "scut." We discovered there were three 
types of rounds, depending on the attend- 
ing: brilliant, boring, or Bradley. 

In our free time (and, except for Med- 
icine, there was much of this) our class- 
mates were assuming responsibility in other 
spheres. Skip, Herb, Gerry, Frank and many 
others were moonlighting as skilled clinical 
chemistry technicians and blood bank work- 
ers. Jack Myers was leading the choir; Bob 
Ashman was inviting Senator Javits to debate 
the AMA; Chuck Poletti was bringing Mar- 
garet Mead to Bard Hall. With 44 of the 
class now married, the wives met and re- 
started the faltering P & S Wives' Club. 
Squash, tennis, rugby, basketball and swim- 
ming were popular sports. A Halloween cos- 
tume party and a spring picnic were success- 
ful class gatherings, as were the individual 
medicine parties atop Bard. 

This was the year of Goldwater's disaster 
and LBJ's Great Society, of Medicare pass- 
age and the assassination of Malcolm X op- 
posite our hospital. It was a year of continu- 
ed growth for the Medical Center, in which 
the Alumni Auditorium was dedicated in 
May, the Black Besearch Building neared 
autumn completion, and a new Babies' 
Hospital wing was begun. 

Our third year had been one of clerkship, 
in which we saw more clearly for the first 
time what our future duties would be as 
physicians. At last we were serving patients, 
and not just memorizing textbooks. The 
training we had received as clerks would pre- 
pare us for the duties of the fourth year, 
when patient care would be our chief re- 
sponsibility. 

It hardly seemed possible that three years 
could pass so quickly, but there we were, on 
the threshold before receiving our Medical 
Degrees, in our Year of Subintemship: N.G. 
tubes and I.V.'s; order books and handbooks 
of therapy; physicals and histories; rounds 
and presentations; appraisals and summaries. 

A class divided into twelve parts has vari- 
ed memories: the New England beauty of 
Bassett versus African and South American 
wilderness hospitals; the private hospitals 
of St. Luke's and Boosevelt versus the city 
behemoths of Bellevue and Goldwater. 
There we were in "whites" on the Surgery 
and Medicine wards, in scrub suits deliver- 



ing babies and holding retractors, with black 
bags and stethoscopes in Peds, Specialties 
and Group. Gradually we were becoming 
more and more qualified to be called "Doc- 
tors." 

This was the year of Jack Baker's "Arts 
Festival," and Bobin Cook's invitation to 
Jacques Cousteau; the year they finally- 
opened the Black Besearch Building; the 
year our fearless Persian colleague revisited 
his land of the Peacock Throne; the year of 
the measles "epidemic." Talented classmates 
gave noon lectures to the third year, and 
were accepted into AOA. Living in New 
York City, we witnessed a vast electric pow- 
er blackout, a subway-bus strike, and the 
election of a Bepublican mayor. 

All the time, hovering in the background, 
loomed Internship: letters for information 
and applications, talks with classmates and 
Dean Perera, recommendations and inter- 
views, trips to the West Coast, the Midwest, 
the South, and New England; the final 
choice and a seven-place ranking by January 
24. And then, on March 14, with many of 
their 55 wives, 3 husbands, and 25 children 
anxiously gathered together at Bard Hall, 
the Class of '66 would hear Dr. Perera an- 
nounce their matchings. Joy, some disap- 
pointment, but mostly relief would be felt, 
and we would return to our separate serv- 
ices, not meeting again as a class until 
April's National Boards, Part II. In the spring 
would come the Alumni-sponsored Waldorf 
dinner-dance, and the class show; finally, on 
June 1, we would assemble for a double- 
ceremony graduation. 

Our fourth year had seen the application 
of all we had iearned previously, and an ap- 
preciation of all that was yet to be learned. 

And so, finally, commencement: both a 
culmination and a beginning. It marks the 
end of our student days at P & S, and the 
start of a lifelong pursuance of knowledge; 
a farewell to old friends, a continued bond 
as alumni; the attainment of a Medical De- 
gree, the responsibility now ours to heal, to 
teach, and to explore new medical horizons. 

Look back once again on four years of 
midnight oil and 5 o'clock cocktails, of 
friendship and conflict, of disappointment 
and success, of marriage, birth and death. 
Look back on four years of maturation and 
preparation. 

To members of the P & S Class of 1966 
much has been given in the last four years; 
from them, in future years, much is to be 
expected. On the foundation of what is past, 
a new and exciting career must now stand. 

So look ahead: to internship, to residency 
—and beyond — with eagerness and confi- 
dence.

ued 



Well, a few years back I was just outa college 

And I had to decide what do with my knowledge 

So I looked in the want ads a little bit 

To see WHO WANTED an English lit 

Major .... Nobody. 

Well, I panicked, I fainted, I got real ill, 

Saw a doctor, and when I got his bill 

I fainted again. . . . 

Then I looked at the bill again 

And that's when I decided that ever since 

I was a little boy 

I always wanted to be a doctor. 

So I arrived at med school and I must confess 

I was really inspired by the opening address. 

I was told a doctor doesn't care about fees 

But dedicates his life to stampin' out disease. 

I was told to stamp out germs, 

I was told to stamp out worms, 

Then I was told to stamp out Medicare. 

Well, school was great for a second there 

Struttin' around like Doc Kildare. 

But then I went to the book store 

And to my surprise 

I saw the books I had to memorize— 

Pathology books, urology books 

Two or three hundred psychology books 

Not to mention anatomy .... They had'em in Latin 

I got the English translation though. . . . 

Thought it might lose something from the original . . 

Books cost me a thousand dollars, not even 

countin' the U-Haul-It .... Sold my bed to 

help pay for 'em, didn't need it no more. 

So I learned all about the human system, 

So many facts I could never list 'em. 

I learned pneumonia makes you shiver 

And the heart pumps blood ... or is it the liver? ? 

Well, you can see that my biggest lesson 

was in head anatomy. 

Yeah, I learned a lotta things can go in one ear 

and right out the other. 



But I stuck it out, I even passed my boards 

And two years later I was on the wards. 

There I was taught to examine the heart 

But the first patient I got 

Really gave me a start. 

She's about 22, Liz Taylor's looks, 

And a bodv thev left out of my anatomv books 

COMPLETELY But I controlled myself 

And very discretely examined her heart, 

Cleverly concealing my embarrassment. 

Put my stethoscope over her heart, 

Shut my eyes 

And listened intently. . . . 

Then she taps me on the head and says I might 

hear more if I put the stethoscope in my ears. 

In surgery they taught me how 
To scrub and sew and scrape and bow 
And even how to mend that little crack 
Where your classmate stabbed you in the back. 
But Medicine was the Hallowed Hall 
Where I learned the most important fact of ail- 
That is simply that S.O.B. does not necessarily 
mean Shortness of Breath. 

Well, that's the gist of the med school story— 

Lotsa work, not much glory 

But when you graduate you're finally free 

To live the life of luxury ... as an intern. 

But if it's money that you wanna earn all you 

have to do is specialize about IS years .... 

I've made my choice. . . . I'm gonna be 

a child psychiatrist. . . . Then if any kid comes in 

sayin' he wants to be a doctor, I'll tell him 

he's NUTS!

OkeP&S CU 



The P & S Club was founded as the 
"YMCA of the College of Physicians and 
Surgeons" in December of 1894. Activities 
at that time were restricted to dues-paying 
members only and membership was limit- 
ed. By 1910 the group had occupied a club- 
house on West 57th Street and boasted ap- 
proximately 125 paying members, with resi- 
dence provisions for 17 provided in the club- 
house. The organization by that time had 
adopted the more stylish "P & S Club" as 
its official title. In addition to such early 
functions as fellowship, bible study, and 
discussion groups, the club provided a strict- 
ly mundane "rooming service" whose pur- 
pose was to assist new students to find lodg- 
ings and to rank the neighborhood ac- 
comodations according to quality. 

In 1928 the College of Physicians and 
Surgeons moved uptown and the Board of 
Advisors took possession of #100 Haven 
Avenue for the Club. Lodgings were there- 
upon provided for some 77 members and 
an eating club was also on the premises. 
Participation was still restricted to dues- 
paying members. In 1931, however, with the 
opening of ultramodern Bard Hall, the old 
system was abandoned. Membership in the 
P & S Club was opened to the student body 
at large; all students became members auto- 
matically and were entitled to participate in 
all club privileges and functions. Financial 
support was provided by the YMCA in ad- 
dition to contributions by the faculty, alumni, 
parents, and friends. Special areas on the 
11th floor of the new dormitory were al- 
located for Club offices and a lounge. 



EDWIN M. BARTON" 



In recent years, particularly under the able 
guidance of Director Edwin Barton, the 
scope of club activities has expanded mark- 
edly. There are more than 21 areas of stu- 
dent-directed activity sponsored at present. 




The program is designed to provide relax- 
ing cultural and social activities as well as to 
promote development of those qualities of 
personality and initiative essential to the 
modern physician. 

In 1965 the Alumni Association of the 
College of Physicians and Surgeons gener- 
ously offered to assume full responsibility 
for financial support of P & S Club activities. 
This gesture has freed the already overtax- 
ed Club office of the encumbrance of con- 
ducting a separate fund drive and has pro- 
vided the Club with financial security per- 
mitting new- breadth of planning. The P & S 
Arts Festival, new in 1966, is the most recent 
example of the continuing growth of Club 
functions. 

With continued attention to the growing 
diversity of student interests, the proposed 
construction of a new dormitory building 
adjacent to Bard Hall, and welcome expan- 
sion of medical school facilities, the P & S 
Club faces new challenges. As we approach 
graduation, we who have enjoyed its bene- 
fits can wish the Club continued success in 
providing for the needs of the Columbia

SK&F Foreign Fellows Have Gone to 

INDIA, TANZANIA, IRAN, GUATEMALA 

At hospitals and medical outposts abroad, medical students 
contribute to international understanding and goodwill by helping 
to provide much-needed medical services to people in developing 
areas of the world. 

This unusual opportunity to work and study in foreign countries 
is offered to students through the Foreign Fellowships Program of 
Smith Kline & French Laboratories. Administered by the 
Association of American Medical Colleges, the program has 
enabled 180 students to work and study in more than 40 countries 
during the past six years. Junior and senior medical students are 
eligible for Fellowships, which provide on the average 12 weeks' 
work abroad, to be completed before internship. Interested students 
should apply through the deans of their schools. 

Smith Kline & French has published an illustrated 24-page booklet 
telling the story of SK&F's Foreign Fellowships Program. For your 
free copy of "Fellowships in Medicine," write to: SK&F Services 
Department, Smith Kline & French Laboratories, Philadelphia,

SANDOZ 
RESEARCH CENTER 

a new addition to Pharmaceutical Progress 




The new Sandoz Research Center is one of the most modern and best equipped research 
facilities in the nation. Here we will seek to acquire fresh knowledge in the field of 
therapeutics. 

Although much of the research will be at the "basic" level, special emphasis will be 
given to the search for compounds with potential therapeutic value. It is our expectation 
that the outcome of basic and applied research will be new drugs — the sign of steady 
progress toward directed goals. 

The Center dedicates itself to improving the future of man's health by helping to make 
the vision of a cure or treatment for every type of disease become a reality.

p.s. 



Although we dedicated this yearbook to one man, Dr. Yale Kneeland, in a sense it really 
should be dedicated to all our faculty members, for all of them are devoted humanitarians, 
teachers and scholars. Nevertheless, we felt that to a considerable degree Dr. Kneeland epit- 
omizes the finest qualities of many and so we chose to single out one as being most repre- 
sentative of all. 

Nineteen years ago the graduating class of the College of Physicians and Surgeons first 
produced a yearbook. In a brief note on the prenatal course of this first P & S senior literary 
production, they commented: 

"At the very onset we were faced with an early threatened abortion on the 
basis of impecunity. Were it not for the kind and hearty ministrations of our 
patrons, P <Lr S '47 would have gone the way of all defective embryos." 

Several years have passed but the financial realities of publication have remained. How- 
ever, now as then, the extraordinary generosity of our faculty makes possible this volume. 

This year's yearbook is in most ways modelled after its predecessors. However, in one 
small way it differs. It has a new name— Aesculapian. Aesculapius was, as Dr. Harry Rose 
would be quick to point out, the son of Apollo and Coronis and mythical father of med- 
icine. Therefore we felt that the name Aesculapian, which denotes both a follower of the an- 
cient Greek healer and a physician in general, was a particularly apt title. We hope it meets 
with favor. 

Aesculapian is largely a "picture book" which, it is hoped, will serve to remind us of our 
experiences at P & S. As such, it required numerous photographs. Among others, we are ex- 
tremely grateful to Mrs. Elizabeth Wilcox for allowing us to use so many of her beautiful 
pictures. Credit also should be given to those of our classmates who helped with the photog- 
raphy. 

Finally, the Yearbook Staff wishes to express its thanks and appreciation to Mr. Emil 
Schmidt and the firm of Bradbury, Sayles, O'Neill, Inc., Publishers, for their assistance and 
encouragement.
